Hi folks welcome to the Creative Inkers Team Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop. I love getting new Stampin’ Up! catalogues, its always exciting to see what their concept artists have come up with and there are some cracking offerings in our newest ones. One of my favourites is the Friends and Flowers stamp set.

My card was inspired by a picture my friend Julia posted on Facebook of some awesome flat cat felt Cup mats and I thought ” I can Punch Art that and use that cute animal face stamp from friends and Flowers!” And Guess What? I could!


This was my first go at using water colour paper to do a washed sky effect but it worked pretty well. Heres a close up of Puss.

Sweet Pea Cutie

If I got this stamp set for nothing other than the pea pod baby stamp that would be OK with me. Its just too cute!

I have yet to explore all the other options I have with Friends and Flowers (page 46 of the new Occasions Catalogue) but I was really pleased with these wee notecards. You can get 3 from one sheet of A4 Card which is always good, just cut at 9.5 cm (or 3 3/4″)and score at 12.5 cm.


Not the best Photo in the world but I made 3 cards, one each of Pool Party, Blushing Bride and So Saffron. I did have to break out the StampAMaJig to do the pod tip and whirlies but it was worth it!


Here is a better pic, the wee whirlies make a cute background, the cross makes a great border (I’m thinking about cross stitch patterns???) then just add circles and some paper piercing.

I’m entering this card in the Just Add Ink Challenge for this week which is Just Add …. Something New!
